Ergin Ataman: “We’ve played wisely…”

Defeating Asvel 90-84 in the tough road match of Turkish Airlines Euroleague game, Anadolu Efes head coach Ergin Ataman stated his thoughts post-game:

“The four teams that came here before us lost the match. This is a crucial victory.  Asvel played very well today as well, but we’ve played wisely. Sertaç Şanlı played with his highest performance in the absence of Dunston. We were bad on pick and roll defense within the first half, Asvel used this beneficially and found points through assists. We’ve fixed this issue within the second half. Our guards Micic, Larkin, and Beaubois scored, and therefore, we’ve grabbed the control of the final quarter. It is crucial to exit this arena with a victory. We’ve won our first victory now. We will travel to Milano on Wednesday. It will not be easy to win against them in Milano, but we will fight for the victory.”
